Changes to North Carolina voting laws could put thousands of 2016 ballots at risk

NC votin law changes threaten thousandsOn Election Day in 2014, Joetta Teal went to work at a polling station in Lumberton, North Carolina. Like all poll workers, she was required to stay until voting booths closed, so she decided to cast her own vote there.

That was a mistake, she later discovered. What she didn't know was that under a 2013 state law she had to vote in the precinct where she lived. The polling station where she voted was not in her precinct, so her vote was not counted.


An Open Letter From Technology Sector Leaders On Donald Trump’s Candidacy For President

Open letter to Trump from tech leadersWe are inventors, entrepreneurs, engineers, investors, researchers, and business leaders working in the technology sector. We are proud that American innovation is the envy of the world, a source of widely-shared prosperity, and a hallmark of our global leadership.

We believe in an inclusive country that fosters opportunity, creativity and a level playing field. Donald Trump does not. He campaigns on anger, bigotry, fear of new ideas and new people, and a fundamental belief that America is weak and in decline.  We have listened to Donald Trump over the past year and we have concluded: Trump would be a disaster for innovation.

Pence picked as Trump running mateRepublican Donald Trump chose Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate on Thursday, U.S. media reported, a move that will put at Trump's side a conservative with the potential to unify divided Republicans.

Trump sues ex senior aideDonald Trump is seeking $10m in damages from a former senior campaign consultant, Sam Nunberg, alleging that Nunberg leaked confidential information to reporters in violation of a nondisclosure agreement.

In a court filing obtained by the Associated Press, Nunberg accuses the presumptive Republican presidential nominee of trying to silence him “in a misguided attempt to cover up media coverage of an apparent affair” between senior campaign staffers. The document cited a New York Post story about a public quarrel between the staffers published last month.



GOP Platform Identifies Pornography As A National Public Health Crisis

GOP platform: porn national threatThis week, Republican delegates are meeting in committee to lay out the 2016 version of their party’s platform document ― a non-binding declaration of #squadgoals that will generate a few days of stories like this one before being largely forgotten.

This year’s platform committee has taken dead aim at one of the few successful industries left in America, besides drone warfare and hot takes about Kevin Durant’s free agency decisions. I refer, of course, to pornography.

TVNL Comment: These repressed, frightened politicians would be funny if they weren't so serious about this.  Geez.

Trumps border wall in platformThe Republican Party is set to give a formal endorsement to the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border espoused by Donald Trump, solidifying it in the party's platform.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Amy Carnevale of Massachusetts, both on the Republican National Convention Platform Committee, successfully petitioned to have the language in the draft platform given to delegates changed to include mention of a wall during subcommittee meetings Monday morning.

After saying securing borders is of the "highest priority," the new language makes clear the party seeks a wall.
